I started a business and am working as an independent contractor for an expedited shipping company. I drive a covered pickup truck, and figured it cost me about .30/mile to run it. Based on that figure, and how many empty miles I'm driving, I realized I'm not making any money. It's a pretty good gig otherwise. No logs, no scales, no dealing with DOT's, imo, messed up new hours of service regs. Maybe I'm just working for the wrong company. Was hoping somebody may have some experience and insight about this type of work. Something I may be missing. Maybe a better company to sign on with. Worked 14 hours today between that and another job I have.
